Youngest Member of Congress hosts Concord Budget Exercise- Rep. Patrick Murphy asks Constituents to Discuss Their Views on Fiscal Policy

Date and Time:

Tuesday, August 20, 2013 - 1:30pm - 3:30pm

Address:

Palm Beach State College - Palm Beach Gardens
3160 PGA Blvd., SC 127
Palm Beach Gardens, FL

Summary:

Congressman Patrick Murphy hosts two meetings on college campuses in his south Florida district which will give citizens the opportunity to assemble their own federal budget.  Phil Smith, Concord's Southern Regional Director says, "Since these long-term fiscal challenges affect young people disproportionately, it's only natural that the Congressman should hold these forums at these colleges."   Murphy, the youngest member of the entire U.S. Congress, is asking his constituents to attend and actively participate in the Tuesday meetings held at Palm Beach State College in Palm Beach Gardens and later in the evening at Indian River State College in Fort Pierce.  For more information or to attend one of the events, please email Phil Smith at psmith@concordcoalition.org.

About Principles and Priorities Events:

Principles & Priorities is our flagship exercise that has been used in hundreds of High Schools, Colleges and Universities across the country.
